A Joint Program between two colleges which awards B.Eng. degree
- COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURAL AND MARINE SCIENCES(CAMS)
- COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING (CoE)
Agricultural or Biosystems Engineering degree programs are established worldwide to train professionals in undergraduate and postgraduate education to apply engineering principles and to conduct research to produce solutions for the agro-food industry and soil/land and water (environmental) engineering problems. It concerns education and research in the engineering and physical sciences to understand, model, process or enhance biological systems for sustainable developments in agriculture, food, land use and the environment. The Agricultural or Biosystems Engineering programs focus on three key challenges currently faced by the humanity: to ensure an adequate and safe food supply for an expanding world population; to protect or remediate the world’s natural resources including water, soil, air and energy; and to develop engineering systems that monitor, replace, or intervene in the mechanisms of living organisms.
At present, the Agricultural Engineering program (B.Eng. Degree) is jointly offered by the College of Agricultural and Marine Sciences and the College of Engineering, which means the degree will be awarded by both colleges. This multidisciplinary program is not only comparable to those offered in internationally reputed Universities, but also designed and benchmarked with the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), USA.
Currently the following three virtual soft streams are available for students to be a specialist while graduation:
- Land and Water Engineering
- Food and Process Engineering
- Power and Machinery Engineering
The student can specialize in any of the soft stream by selecting appropriate electives and choosing internship training and projects relevant to them.
